ABOUT US

Humane values education is our main mission.

We travel to schools throughout the country to teach schoolchildren the importance of kindness to all, of discovering and respecting animals and their various habitats as well as being caring stewards of our planet.

Our humane education program, which we adapt not only for schools but also for community groups or programs, strives to encourage everyone to consider and adopt thoughtful and responsible ways of interacting with all living creatures.

 

Founded in 2002, our not for profit organization has reached more than 15,000 school children through our humane education program, re-homed and rescued hundreds of pets via our social media pages and spayed/neutered over a thousand cats and dogs through our free spay/neuter clinics.

ADOPT/RE-HOME

The Humane Society of Dominica does not have or operate a physical shelter. 

 

We use our social media presence to post information on adoptable pets and we place animals when needed with foster guardians until they are ready to be adopted.  We interview all potential adopters and all pets re-homed through our services are or will be spayed/neutered - don't worry, we do not charge for adoptions and we pay for the spay/neuter surgery!

 

If you would like us to post a pet in need of re-homing, please send PHOTOS of the pet as well relevant details (pet's gender, age, caracteristics, etc.) together with a contact number. We will need to contact you before posting.

HUMANE EDUCATION

Our humane education program is aimed at school children grades 4 through Form II and it can be tailored to any community or group.  Schools interested in inviting our humane values educator give our 50 minutes interactive lessons or groups interested in creating a special activity simply need to contact us to set up an appropriate time.  Go ahead, get in touch and extend kindness!

YOUTH GROUP

From creating and taking part in our fundraising events, to helping during our free spaying/neutering clinics, to producing fun videos, our Youth Group is an integral part of our organization. 

 

Our Youth Group is a great resource and allows its members to become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill their potential.

SPAY/NEUTER CLINICS

Pet overpopulation is an issue that affects local communities as well as wildlife habitats.

 

We believe that spaying/neutering is the only long term, humane way of addressing this issue and promoting and encouraging this practice is an integral part of our humane education program.
 

We partner with veterinarians, local authorities and village councils to organize free spay/neuter clinics in areas where interventions are most needed, especially in the aftermath of natural disasters when population displacement renders more pets homeless and taxes their welfare and the welfare of wildlife and the environment.
